What is the best fbl head to get for 50 and 90 sized heli's. I'd like to convert my 700 and a couple of 50's, but don't know which to get, I've heard not so good things about the dfc from align so which other one?

I assume you have Align helis?
Then go with Align heads.

I like the compass/trackx heads for 50s and have had good luck with the RJX trex 700 heads. I actually have a couple of RJX heads for the 700 if you are interested. I no longer have a T700 so I don't need them anymore and will let them go cheap. PM me if you are interested.

I am having good luck with the RJX heads or the Align heads. The RJX head is better cost wise. And still performs the same functions.

I don't fly Align, but some of my buddies at the field do. The heads are really impressive and had me a little jealous. The quality and machining looks really nice. And man do they withstand a crash like no one's business.

.....I think I might be talking myself into a Trex 700E here.

My vote goes to the RJX FBL head. The head is VERY beefy and very well made! And a very good price. next on my list would be the outrage head. never used one but very nice in price

Pretty fond of the Outrage head for 50s myself. Worked miracles on my Rappy.

I had the 50 size RJX FBL head and Align FBL head..The Align head is awesome and i'll never buy another RJX head again.With everyone getting the DFC heads,you can pick up a Align head really cheap...

Yeah rayman you are you right about that acronym.

looks like Shape heli is going out of business, though.

Not all about "who" makes it, most important is if the geometry lines up to what you are converting, do your research on which models and go from there.

...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...
